I see you are taking efforts to create m4b files... should we make the automatically for each item? (I dont know anything more than a quick web search about them).

Creating the M4B files automatically would be nice, but I see two challenges with trying to make it part of the normal derive processes.

1) The M4B file includes a cover image which is usually not ready at the time the audiobook project is first uploaded to Internet Archive.

2) Some older devices and/or software can only handle files a little over 200 MB or smaller so larger projects would need to be split into multiple M4B files.
